Dust Combustibility (Group A/B)

The test is conducted to assess whether a dust/powder will form a flammable atmosphere, supporting flame propagation, when dispersed as a dust cloud in air.

Minimum Ignition Energy (MIE)

The minimum ignition energy (MIE) test is conducted to determine the lowest spark energy that will ignite a powder when dispersed in air, as a dust cloud.

Learn more

Minimum Ignition Temperature (MIT)

The Minimum Ignition Temperature (MIT) test is conducted to determine the lowest temperature at which a hot surface will ignite a powder when dispersed in air, as a dust cloud.

Learn more

Layer Ignition Temperature (LIT)

The Layer Ignition Temperature (LIT) test is conducted to determine the lowest temperature at which a hot surface will ignite a powder when settled as a dust layer.

Learn more

Explosion Severity (Pmax, Kst)

The explosion severity test is conducted to determine maximum pressure (Pmax), Maximum rate of pressure rise ((dP/dt)max) and Kst of an ignited powder, dispersed in air, as a dust cloud.

Learn more

Minimum Explosive Concentration (MEC)

The minimum explosive concentration test is conducted to determine the minimum quantity of powder dispersed in air, as a dust cloud that will ignite.

Learn more

Limited Oxygen Concentration (LOC)

The limiting oxygen concentration test is conducted to determine the minimum quantity of oxygen, within an atmosphere, that will enable a powder dispersed in air, as a dust cloud to ignite.

Burning Behaviour

The test is conducted to assess the behaviour (severity) of combustion propagation through a material deposit on being ignited by an external ignition source.
